Lyrics

Your love is magical, that's how I feel

But I have not the words here to explain

Gone is the grace for expressions of passion

But there are worlds and worlds of ways to explain

To tell you how I feel But I am speechless, speechless

That's how you make me feel

Though I'm with you I am far away and nothing is for real

When I'm with you I am lost for words, I don't know what to say

My head's spinning like a carousel, so silently I pray

Helpless and hopeless, that's how I feel inside

Nothing's real, but all is possible if God is on my side

When I'm with you I am in the light where I cannot be found

It's as though I am standing in the place called Hallowed Ground

Speechless, speechless, that's how you make me feel

Though I'm with you I am far away and nothing is for real

I'll go anywhere and do anything just to touch your face

There's no mountain high I cannot climb

I'm humbled in your grace

Speechless, speechless, that's how you make me feel

Though I'm with you I am lost for words and nothing is for real

Speechless, speechless, that's how you make me feel

Though I'm with you I am far away, and nothing is for real

Speechless, speechless, that's how you make me feel

Though I'm with you I am lost for words and nothing is for real

Speechless

Your love is magical, that's how I feel

But in your presence I am lost for words

Words like, "I love you."

Trivia

  • Michael Jackson wrote "Speechless" after a water balloon fight with children in Germany. It took him 45 minutes. In an interview with Vibe magazine, the musician commented, "I was so happy after the fight that I ran upstairs in their house and wrote 'Speechless'. Fun inspires me. I hate to say that, because it's such a romantic song." He added, "But it was the fight that did it. I was happy, and I wrote it in its entirety right there. I felt it would be good enough for the album. Out of the bliss comes magic, wonderment, and creativity." Jackson would consider "Speechless" to be one of his favorite songs on Invincible.[1]
